Bank of America® Premium Rewards® Program Information. How You Earn Points:
You earn points when you use your card to make purchases, minus returns, credits and adjustments (“Net Purchases”). The following transactions are not considered Net Purchases and will not earn points: Balance Transfers and Cash Advances (each as defined in your Credit Card Agreement), fees, interest charges, fraudulent transactions and certain other charges. Unlimited 1.5 Points:
Earn 1.5 base points for every $1 of Net Purchases (non-Travel and Dining) charged to the card each billing cycle. 2 Points:
Earn 2 base points for every $1 of Net Purchases made with the card in the Travel and Dining category, with no limit on the number of points you can earn. Travel and Dining Category:
Dining includes Restaurants, including Fast Food, and Drinking Establishments, such as Bars or Taverns. Travel includes: airlines, hotels, motels, timeshares, trailer parks, motor home and recreational vehicle rentals, campgrounds, car rental agencies, truck and trailer rental, cruise lines, travel agencies, tour operators and real estate agents, operators of passenger trains, buses, taxis, limousines, ferries, boat rentals, parking lots and garages, tolls and bridge fees, tourist attractions and exhibits like art galleries, amusement parks, carnivals, circuses, aquariums, zoos and the like. Purchases from some merchants that provide travel-related goods and services will not be eligible, like in-flight goods and services, and duty-free airport purchases. Travel and Dining Category Processing:
Merchants are assigned a merchant category code (MCC) based on the merchant's primary line of business. We do not determine which MCC a merchant chooses to classify itself. We group similar MCCs into Categories to help you earn rewards on purchases made at specific merchants. Your purchase may not qualify to receive the Travel and Dining category earn rate if the merchant does not process transactions under the MCC that corresponds with the Travel and Dining Category, or your purchase is processed through a third-party payment account, mobile/wireless card reader, digital wallet not supported by Bank of America or similar technology where the technology does not support transmission of MCCs. For those Net Purchases, you will earn 1.5 base points per $1. Not all merchants accept all credit cards. How You Use Your Points:
When your points balance is 2,500 points or more, you can redeem your points for cash rewards, including a statement credit, an electronic deposit into a Bank of America®
checking or savings account, a contribution to an eligible Cash Management Account®
with Merrill Lynch Wealth Management®
or Merrill Edge®
, or College 529 savings account held at Merrill Lynch. Points may also be redeemed for travel at the Travel Center, or gift cards. Cash rewards shall be issued for a U.S. dollar sum and may be requested on demand. Each point redeemed is worth $0.01 (2,500 points = $25). Points Expiration:
As long as your account remains in good standing, points do not expire. Points Forfeiture:
If the owner(s) of the card account voluntarily closes the card account, or if for any reason we close the card account, any unredeemed points associated with the account are subject to immediate forfeiture, unless specifically authorized by us. Rewards Program Rules:

Certain restrictions apply to each benefit. Details accompany new account materials. Overdraft Protection.
Overdraft transfers to your eligible Bank of America deposit account from your credit card account will be Bank Cash Advances under your Credit Card Agreement. Transfers will be subject to the terms of both your Credit Card Agreement and the account agreement(s) and disclosures governing your Bank of America deposit account. If you link your Bank of America deposit account to your credit card for Overdraft Protection, we will automatically transfer funds in multiples of $100 from your credit card account to cover any overdraft on your deposit account, as long as the portion of credit available for cash on your credit card account is sufficient and you are not in default under your Credit Card Agreement. A fee of $12 will apply for each transaction. The fee will not be assessed (a) if your deposit account is overdrawn by a total amount less than $12, after we finish processing for the day, or (b) each overdraft transaction processed that day is $1 or less. The Bank Cash Advance will accrue interest at the APR stated in your Credit Card Agreement. Overdraft Protection transfers incur interest charges from the transaction date. If the portion of credit available for cash on your credit card account is insufficient to cover the amount required by the overdraft (in the multiple of funds stated above), we may advance the funds even if it causes your credit card account to exceed your Cash Credit Line. Linking Overdraft Protection from your Bank of America credit card to your Bank of America deposit account will end any other Overdraft Protection connections to your deposit account. Please see your Credit Card Agreement for additional details.
If the total amount you request exceeds your Total Credit Line, we may send full or partial payment to your creditors in the order you provide them to us. Allow at least 2 weeks from account opening for processing. Continue paying each creditor until the transfer appears as a credit. Balance Transfers incur interest charges from the transaction date. If you revolve your balance to take advantage of a promotional or introductory offer, all transactions and balances, including purchases, will be charged interest. The Balance Transfer fee is 3% of the amount of the transaction (min. $10). If you have a dispute with a creditor and pay that balance by transferring it to your new account, you may lose certain dispute rights. Balance Transfers may not be used to pay off or pay down any account issued by Bank of America, N.A. or its affiliates.
